Melrose Jam

JULY – TUNE OF THE MONTH
What else for July, but…Camp Meeting on the Fourth of July, bringing to mind the Chester Heights Camp Meeting grounds; Skillman and Pedlow family gatherings of old, imagining the day-long drive out to the Camp Meeting for the families in their Model Ts from Chester and Upland, PA, and tales of my father who said he learned to swim under the train trestle there at Chester Heights as a youth.

JULY JAM CANCELLED!
